Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

Let’s face it, potatoes are amazing in any form they take whether its a baked potato, mashed potatoes, french fries, potato chips, etc. Today I bring to you my new favorite way to make potatoes: smashed potatoes. The process is quite simple and requires very little ingredients, but the result is delightful. In my opinion, these are some gourmet potato chips that will satisfy everyone. I added an extra twist to the potatoes by using fresh minced rosemary from Maya’s Farm and rosemary infused olive oil from Hatun.¬†Grab yourself a bag of baby potatoes from Blue Sky Farms at the market this weekend while they are in season!

  3. add the potatoes to a medium sized pot and cover with at least an inch of water
  4. bring the water and potatoes to a boil and simmer for about 20-25 minutes
  5. once a fork can very easily slide into the potato, strain the potatoes and let them cool
  6. as the potatoes cool, mince the rosemary
  7. once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, take the bottom of the cup and mash them into flat pieces (I used the bottom of an old jar)
  8. next, line your smashed potatoes on a non-stick baking sheet
  9. drizzle the olive oil over top of the potatoes and add the minced rosemary, garlic powder, pepper, and salt.
  10. let the potatoes cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy on the outsides
  11. remove from the baking sheet and serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
